This is a haunting image that was perfect for the dark tone of TDS. We had to ask Dee what inspired her to take this photo.

TDS: What was your inspiration for taking this photo? 

Dee Espinoza: I love photography, and anytime I can get a great shot I take it. This, in my opinion, is a great shot. Dark, spooky, and allows the viewer to imagine all sorts of possibilities.

TDS: What’s the story behind this photo? What led you to this place? 

Dee Espinoza: This photo was taken at Pinnacle National Park, located near Hollister. My sister and I are adventurous and love exploring new places.  

TDS:  Is there a creative process you use when preparing that perfect photo?

Dee Espinoza: I find that most of the time the most random shots tend to be the best. There is never a rhyme or reason to my photos. I just shoot what I like. I am very partial to black and white; I feel it gives the photo great  dimension.
